“So Sweet and So Cute”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

It's a very amazing museum, you can enjoy not only factory of Shiroi Koibito, but also exhibition of sweets and antique etc.
Besides, if you join the program of making sweets by yourself, you can make your original design's cookie and get "My Shiroi Koibito" box.
It will be a so nice gift for your family or friends.
The way of making sweets is not so difficult, so I can recommend for small children, too.
I am also impressed by their hospitality and parade at the beautiful garden.
MUST GO PLACE in SAPPORO!

“A must go place at Sapporo”
Reviewed May 24, 2013 via mobile

This is a very cute and romantic chocolate factory. Every hour there have musical show with bubbles around. The whole park is alive, all the piggy,doggy,birds, x'mas trees and etc will be moving. It's just fantastic! But if you wish to buy the Shiroi Koibito biscuit/chocolate, you can get it any other supermarket or airport, Haneda airport have it after you pass the immigration custom. The price at other places was about 10% cheaper than the factory, expiry date almost same. I was so regret to buy so much and carry all the way from Sapporo to Toya then Hakodate then Tokyo, this is just crazy when I saw the same product at Haneda airport before departing back to homeland.

“A chocolate factory tour to rival Willy Wonka. (Yet this one is real!)”
Reviewed May 13, 2013 via mobile

Learned more about chocolate in one hour here then I have in my whole life, and I "done got me a college degree."
Seriously tho, the visit was educational and entertaining.
In addition to what is probably the world's leading collection of chocolate memorabilia you also get to see a unique and fascinating collection of antique gramophones (probably without equal anywhere in the world) and a charming collection of antique toys.
My only regret is that there was not more comprehensive English information available.

“Interesting Experience.”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

The chocolate factory is definitely an interesting experience. The building and park area look like they have been taken straight out of a German fairytale. Everything is very cute and I bet it looks a ton better in the summer time. The cost to walk through the chocolate factory/museum is 600 Yen. You get to see the history of chocolate making as well as the process of an actual factory. They are pretty clever because they offer you a chocolate cookie with your ticket and by the end of your trip you want to buy it all!

By the end of the tour it takes a strange turn (almost looks like a hoarder decided to show off their collection) because there are displays of gramophones, vintage toys, antique furniture and memorabilia from around the world. Very strange! I think this section might be geared more toward kids :)

Overall, the chocolate factory was fun to experience. Plus the chocolate cookies are delicious!
Getting there was also pretty easy - subway and then it's about a 10 minute walk from the station.

“A "kawaii" factory”
Reviewed January 21, 2013 via mobile

The building is very "kawaii", and its park is also nice. If you have enough budget, try to enter the factory, it costs around 600 yen. You can learn the making of chocolate, and even see by yourself its process and the machines. Quite the fun way to learn something new.
